Greetings from The String Cheese Incident Headquarters….the management team has been hard at work, racking our brains to try and come up with a couple of new and creative ideas for the Barefoot Boys that will properly capture the feeling of excitement we all get when we look ahead to Summer 2012…we came up with a massive list of ideas that ranged from shooting Billy out of a cannon to having Kyle brew up a pool full of Summer Ale and inviting all of Boulder over for a swim….unfortunately many of these ideas proved to either be prohibitively expensive, logistically impossible or just downright dumb….however, we are pleased to report that we did come up with a couple that we wanted to share with everyone.
The second idea we are going to roll out this summer is one that we have actually been working on for a very long time. Way back in the summer of 2003, the band filed a lawsuit in Federal Court against Ticketmaster. The basic gist of the lawsuit was that the band wanted to maintain the ability to sell a large amount of tickets directly to the fans with the intention of keeping the service charge as reasonable as possible. Some very pointed discussions took place, the issue was resolved and the band continued selling tickets as they had always done.
The String Cheese Incident is proud to announce that we have figured out a way to finally achieve the ultimate goal with this whole ticketing exercise! Every ticket bought through SCI Ticketing will be SERVICE FEE-FREE! That’s right….if you order tix thru the band’s website there will be no service charge add-ons aside from shipping (which is out of our hands)…..the ticket price that is listed is the price that you will pay. The band is going to cover the credit card fee….the band is going to cover the cost to take the orders and fulfill the tickets….the cost of a $49.95 ticket to Red Rocks will cost you $49.95…..the cost of a $49.95 ticket to the Greek will cost you $49.95….a $239 ticket to Horning’s will be $49.95…just kidding, it will actually be $239….that’s it….super simple. We’ve got a big batch of tickets to sell but the supply is not limitless….get ’em while you can!
As you can see the venues that the band will be visiting this summer have been chosen with lots of love and care….they are all epic and we couldn’t be more psyched to get out on the road.
